I was using previous version of Mac and used to connected to a server with SSH console.It used to run X 11 after loading my requested programs(Mathematica) on remote server and was working properly.Recently I upgraded my Mac to the latest version(Mountain Lion 10.8.4) and this SSH is not loading the "X" and I can not use remote access to my requested program from remote server.How can I fix the problem.Please in a easy way because I am not in using Mac commands at all.

    Do you mean X11, the display manager? if so, it was deprecated, and you will need to download and install it seperately as it is no longer included in OS X.

  • → Alex: please edit your original post. As noted by Stuffe, X 10 doesn't mean a lot to many of us (except the survivors who knew this version of the X Window System ☺).

As per this page, X11/XQuartz is deprecated from OS X now, and you will need to install it seperately in order to get any X-Windows display manager type stuff working:


There seems to be another X11 download here which may also be useful.
